It's October and things are starting to heat up... at least in colour, if not the weather! We've had a lot of rain, cool days and wind this month, but there must have been some sunshine in there somewhere, because everything is growing madly.
I am watering my neighbours' garden while they are away, and in return I get to pick the ranunculus. Such beautiful vibrant blooms, and they last a good week in the vase. I really need to remember to get some ranunculus bulbs of my own come February.
These are some primroses I picked up on sale in late winter. Actually, I don't think they were on sale, I think I just gave in to temptation and purchased them even though I didn't really need them. Aren't they beautiful though? The pink ones are so frilly. The colours remind me of hydrangeas. Hopefully they will sleep all summer without drying out, and pop back into life next winter. That will be something to look forward to.
What's blooming in your garden this month?
